Book Description

The most comprehensive introduction to the life of the Mahatma Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is among the most enigmatic, charismatic, deeply revered and equally reviled figures of the twentieth century. His Autobiography, one of the most widely read and translated Indian books of all time, is a classic that allows us to glimpse the transformation of a well-meaning lawyer into a Satyagrahi and an ashramite. In this first-ever Critical Edition, eminent scholar Tridip Suhrud shines new light on Gandhi's life and thought. The deeply researched notes elucidate the contexts and characters of the Autobiography, while alternative translations capture the flavour, cadence and quirkiness of the Gujarati. In the highly original and insightful introduction, Suhrud traces Gandhi's evolution into a seeker of Truth as God, and explores possible modes of reading the Autobiography. This Critical Edition of the Autobiography is an absorbing, illuminating text about the life-affirming journey of the most public yet most complex figure of Indian history.
